Hughie & Louie's
Costumes, Magic and More


Hughie & Louie's commenced operation in 1998 after Louie purchased inventory from the closing icon, the Magic Corner on Hillsborough Street in Raleigh. The new business was named in honor of Uncle Hughie, a proprietor of the original Magic Corner. The first retail operation occupied a small building in downtown Concord, NC, and it stayed in operation for several years. In 2000, Louie purchased a large volume of inventory from Georgia Stage and Costume in the Atlanta area, leased her current space, and opened the second Hughie & Louie's retail space on Glenwood Avenue in Raleigh. She closed the Concord location a few years later to concentrate efforts in the larger Raleigh market. Seventeen years later, Hughie & Louie's is Raleigh's only year-round, full service costume shop offering customized services for theatrical troupes, churches, businesses, and party goers of all sorts. Louie regards Hughie & Louie's as a "boutique" for the discerning customer - a bona fide costumery, not a Halloween store. Visit Hughie & Louie's for all your costume and theatrical needs. Don't forget, we have Santa, Mrs. Claus, elves, snowmen, Easter Bunny, Tom Turkey, many period costumes, and much, much more.
